Research forms an integral part of The Island’s strategy since it underpins every one of our activities.

Whether it be developing a collection for a client, preparing an exhibition, outlining a symposium, or devising a publication, good research is essential to achieving our goals.

The close study of materials and sources leads to knowledge based on solid, verifiable evidence. Moreover, we understand research to include productive dialogue with specialists in relevant fields, to maintain a position at the cutting edge of current developments.
